Greetings,

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out our annual report. And we hope you’ll take pride in what has been accomplished over the years with your help.

Considering the challenges facing our democracy today, there has never been a time the Democracy Campaign was needed more than it is right now.

The economy has created hardship for most everyone these past two or three years, although you wouldn't know it if you only looked at the less than 1% of the population that pays for all the TV ads and other political campaigning. There seems to be no end to what they can afford when it comes to their efforts to buy elections and own our government.

We should be so lucky. Unfortunately, like most other charitable and social-change organizations, it hasn't been easy for the Democracy Campaign to raise funds in this ailing economy. The holiday season is critical, with over 40% of charitable donations to nonprofits made in the last six to eight weeks of the year. Year-end giving can make or break a nonprofit’s budget, and the Democracy Campaign is no exception.

As you look over our annual report we’re confident you’ll see that we’ve done a lot of great work over the past 15 years. We face bigger challenges than ever in the year ahead. Please consider making a much-needed gift to help us finish up 2010 in good financial shape and make sure we can hit the ground running in the new year. Go here to make your tax-deductible donation.

Thank you for your consideration of a special year-end gift to the Democracy Campaign. You can use our secure site to make an online donation or go here to print out a form that you can mail in with your contribution.

All of us here at the Democracy Campaign wish you a joyous holiday season.
